Maybe there could be some mention of Schnabel, also, in his Bachian-types of interpretations. It seems that the WTC .. and maybe the Musical Offering .. are closely-aligned, in their melodic & harmonic developments. Well, of course, we could try to make similar connections, in Bach, to MANY compositions, across various instruments and/or orchestras. Thanks!
    Didn't know Schnabel had done any Bach. I will have to check that out, even though I have very similar feelings about him as I do with Fischer (rushed, awkward, nervous). I just don't care for that style of pianism- it's embodied by Rubinstein as well.

    Just a quick question. Does anyone know of a version performed on the clavichord? Listened to Kunst Der Fugue the other day played on the clavichord and it was, without a doubt, my most enjoyable and rewarding listen.

    Ralph Kirkpatrick recorded both books on clavichord.

    In addition to Kirkpatrick,

    --Colin Tilney plays Book 1 on a clavichord (while his Book 2 is played on a harpsichord):

    https://www.amazon.com/Bach-Das-Wohl.../dp/B000002ZM3

    --On You Tube: Wim Winter, Book 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFZL...fcLg4Eyd2G7sV7

    --Richard Troeger has also recorded Bach extensively on a clavichord, but I don't think he's done the WTC yet.

    Jaroslav Tuma and Ralph Kirkpatrick as Don says. Both worth trying IMO

    Who playing? There’s a version on clavichord by Stefan Müller and Johann Sonnleitner which is a great favourite of mine.

    Richard Troeger was the player. I listened on YouTube.
